“There are certain expectations within our program that must be met on a daily basis,” Kelly said in a statement. “Quite simply, Greg did not meet those expectations.”
Irish Illustrated's Pete Sampson reported that Bryant fell short of the necessary grades in summer school.
Greg Bryant Sr. told Irish Illustrated that his son needed to attain a B+ grade in summer school to be eligible, but he received a B- in the class. Bryant is expected to return to Notre Dame on Aug. 22 as a student but will not participate in the team's training camp.
Bryant remains on scholarship and will practice with the team. In late June, Bryant was suspended for the first four games of the season after a violation of team rules.
Bryant ran for 289 yards on 54 carries with three touchdowns as a sophomore last season.
